In this Resource Review our experts recommend top resources for teaching primary English to save you valuable time.
Freelance educational writer Gill Budgell has chosen three resources for primary English:
- Collin's Big Cat, a reading scheme from HarperCollins including books and CD-ROMs
- Reading Comprehension Cubes, a tactile resource from Learning Resources
- Story Catcher, a free website which offers a forum for children's writing
In her south London classroom Louise Newman tries out books from the Collin's Big Cat series to teach her Key Stage 1 class about verbs and adjectives.
Across the country in Southport, Caroline Williams uses Reading Comprehension Cubes with her Key Stage 2 class.
Back in London, Gill discusses her choices with presenter Hermione Cockburn; Barbara Conridge from NATE and Adrienne Jones, a freelance education consultant.
